Resident Evil Degeneration Movie

Resident Evil Degeneration Movie

A CGI animated movie based on the Resident Evil and directed by Makoto Kamiya is going to be released straight to DVD and Blu Ray in the USA on the 30th of December 2008. The movie is titled Resident Evil Degeneration (it is also known as Biohazard Degeneration in Japan). Unlike the previous Resident Evil film trilogy, Degeneration is set within the same universe as the original video games.

Have a look to some Resident Evil Degeneration clips:

“In autumn 2005, an incident happens at the airport of Harvardville, a mid-western American city. Claire Redfield, now a member of a non-governmental organization that handles search and rescue operations regarding chemical and bioterrorist attacks, is sent to oversee the rescue operation. The plan goes awry when an infected victim attacks several others, causing the infection to spread quickly and starting widespread panic among the public in the airport. At the same time, a passenger plane makes an emergency landing, which fails and crashes into the lobby.

Meanwhile, an unknown terrorist holding the deadly T-virus demands the President of the United States to unveil the entire truth of what happened in the Raccoon City disaster and the direct involvement of Umbrella. Leon S. Kennedy, one of the survivors from Raccoon City and now a government agent, is sent to the airport to command the Special Response Team. Together with Claire and an ex-SWAT police officer, Angela Miller, they and the rest of the SRT have to repel the zombies, find any possible survivors in the airport, and track down the bio-terrorist responsible for the incident within a four-hour deadline or the T-virus will be spread to every major city on the planet.”

I’d love to see this manga based on the universe Resident Evill to spawn into a TV series. It looks like a much better animated adaptation than what has been done with Star Wars The Clone Wars!

Trailer of Death Note 2 The last Name

“Light Yagami joins the investigation team in pursuit of the serial killer known as “Kira.” While L still strongly suspects that Light is “Kira,” Light Yagami continues to seek out the real name of L so he can kill him with his Death Note. Making things even more unpredictable are the ‘Eyes of Death’, given to the second Kira, enabling the owner to know the true identity and lifespan of any person. Adding further confusion for the authorities, a new rash of murders attributed to the Death Note occurs all over the world and is attributed to “the Second Kira.” Light Yagami learns the identity of the other Kira and wants to join forces to get rid of L. Will L be able to catch “Kira” before he gets killed? Who will be the last name written in the Death Note book?” (Source: Fathom Events)

I really enjoyed the animated series, so I’m going to catch up with the first Death Note live action movie and will try to see Death Note 2 in one of those selected theaters. Happy!
